President Trump has never met a kitchen too hot, nor a mountain too high to climb.
This is the man who tamed the world’s most frantic real estate market with ease, before then making his indelible mark on television and eventually winding up sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office.
If the left thinks that Trump is scared of them, they have another thing coming.
Even after a second “whistleblower” has lodged a formal complaint about the President’s dealings with Ukraine, the Commander in Chief has been defiant, openly daring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vote on impeachment.
Well, it looks like Mr. President is going to get what he asked for.
House Democrats believe they have the 217 votes needed to pass articles of impeachment against President Trump stemming from his Ukraine call — enough votes to impeach Trump and send articles to the Senate — even before their planned hearings or formal investigation.
A senior member of the House Democratic Caucus told Fox News on Sunday it’s unlikely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will give in to the president’s demand for an “inquiry vote.”
The source said that while leadership hasn’t officially whipped or nose-counted a vote to “impeach,” they believed the numbers were there based on the 227 votes already on record for an inquiry and were working under that assumption.
This is not to say that confidence in the vote count was high, either.
When asked what could stop the process, the source said it was unclear but the caucus couldn’t rule out the idea of “cold feet” among some Democrats.
President Trump has been goading Democrats to this precipice for some time, believing that a swift impeachment attempt will behoove his chances of surviving the affair, and perhaps even boost his chances in the 2020 election.
